Wanted to do something different on our week in the Dales and this fitted the bill perfectly. Our guide Dave pushed, squeezed and splashed us down through the caves and despite our trepidation gave us masses of encouragement. A really memorable experience.

We booked onto an afternoon climbing experience. Our guide Sean was brilliant and encouraging especially as neither of us had done much climbing before. Luckily the other climbers had not turned up so we had a private session!

A really excellent experience. My daughter (14) and I spent 3 hours exploring Alum Pot cave with Dave - a hugely experienced, patient and humorous guide. It was great fun and throughout we felt we were with a very safe pair of hands. Highly recommended.
